Your 2010 nightlife resolutions
If I had to make a new year's nightlife resolution, it would be to try more specialty drinks. I have a weakness for good beer, and too often end up swilling suds. Midnight Sun guest columnist Teresa Wiltshire has a few resolutions of her own:
The typical new year's resolutions are so boring: "lose weight," "stop smoking," and "break up with my cheating girlfriend."
Why stick to these goals you only keep until mid-February (if you're lucky)? Skip the ice cream and don't think about lighting that cigarette. Gross. Oh, and tell that girl to get over herself.
It's time for a few nightlife resolutions -- because I know I am in need of some myself. ...
Go to a different neighborhood
I've gone there a couple times, but really haven't spent much time there. All I keep hearing is, 'go to Hamilton Tavern (pictured).' I must go. Resolution noted! Lauraville is also home to Zeke's coffee.
Sowebo short for South West Baltimore. A small neighborhood community that will make you wonder, "How long has this been here and why have I not gone?"
Getting your dance on
Always wanted to swing dance? Charm City Swing offers Classes for all levels. You know, dancing burns calories.
Do something scary
Graveyards are creepy in the day, but creepier at night. Edger Allen Poe's grave has a mystery surrounding it. Visiting it at night will creep you out. I know it would creep me out. What an adventure.
Join a sports team
You know you want to. Baltimore Sports and Social Club is perfect for your inner athlete. Do you have to be a great athlete? Nope. They have different levels of skills that you can join. Their motto is "For people who enjoy sports ... but love to socialize." They really stress the love. So if you don't like socializing and/or sports, it's clearly not for you.
Of course there are many more things I can mention. But let's start small.
